Problem with CADViewx viewer for hpgl2 files

Post by DavidAngers » 18 Nov 2010, 10:39

Good morning,

Our company sells a CAO software used by surveyors for land consolidation.
Plot files are written directly by our soft in hpgl2 native language.
We would be very interested in your activex giving the opportunity to our customers to view their drawings and to export them to pdf.
(We also read it could be used in .net)

Plot-file attached
So we tried your demo version and we noticed that plot-files are not rendered the same way they looked when sent to the plotter :
- french word accents are not correct
- some colours are not correctly rendered
- when plot-file contains hatches, they do not appear in the viewer

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for interest to CADViewX software. Unfortunately the hatches from the file really visualized as solid filling. We have found only one wrong color - the gray solid. We will consider both the problems. The french symbols must be generated as unicode symbols for correct visualization.
